OK. I was trying to come up with a worthy blog post and was having issues until I remembered seeing the above link yesterday. If you're older and not really tech savvy you probably won't get a lot of the contexts to it, but if you are somewhat tech savvy and know people that aren't, you probably will laugh your butt off!
I was so lucky that I tend to laugh silently anyway - especially when I'm laughing hard, because I read it at work and was really rolling in my chair.
Laughter helps release endorphins and thus help melt stress away. It's also one of those things that helps when you might be in a bit of a mood. Find a good TV show or movie that YOU think is funny so you can help change your perspective. Or maybe a YouTube of a comedy routine you really love and makes you laugh.
My day started off OK today. I did my gratitudes for the morning while I was busy trying to wake up (and not wanting to). I noticed I was running behind. Ever have one of those days? Most people then get worried that they're going to be late, yell at other drivers for driving so slow, whip around cars and really cause a potential of creating accidents.
Ever see Office Space? Beginning of the movie, the guy seems to always be in the lane that doesn't move. So you see him get an opening to the one that is moving and then as soon as he gets in that lane, it stops. And this keeps going on and on.
I used to be that way. I'm lucky in that I have a flexible start time. But when I became more spiritual and know that the angels are looking out for me I don't stress on getting here "on time". I just breathe.. put on some happy music and jam. I figure if I'm meant to get there on time, I will. If I'm not, I won't. So today, I left a lot later than I normally do and even though it appeared traffic was bad I didn't let it stress me. Know what? I ended up being 5 mins late. It could have been 30-50 minutes and probably would have been had I been stressed about it.
One of the other things I've been slightly stressing about is money. This time of year for me gets to be tight as I have 3 kids with birthdays and Easter within 2 months. It's always worse when Easter falls closer to the birthdays. Did I forget to mention an anniversary and my birthday and my husband's birthday in there? So I see a lot of different number schemas from the angels. These are number patterns. 101, 111, 202, 222, 303, 313, 333.. etc. Well this morning it was 808. Looking at a website I use for number patterns - 808 was something along the lines of watching my money a bit more closely. So me being me said well then help me by giving me some extra coming in.
Now, I've been playing the lottery (no winners.. not even a number usually) and have even asked them "Show me the money!" and angels like to be practical jokers sometimes. So after the show me the money rant - I got a nickle outside of my truck the next morning. So after asking again, I thought I'd see something similar. However, I was floored. I got an order from my website (www.healingsbyharmonize.com) . So now, tonight I will be working on that order and have now brought a little more money to me. May not be a lot, but we all have to start somewhere.
So when you get a moment. Stop worrying. Start Laughing and loosening up and having some fun. You'll never know what it can bring you ...
Your Card - “Strength” - This card comes to you because you need to know that you’re stronger than you realize. You can definitely handle your current situation. However, instead of “powering through it,” you’re better off with an approach of compassion, kindness, and gentleness. The strength that this situation calls for comes from the softness of a spiritual core.
Today's card tells us to be strong. Whether that be for ourselves or for others. I do know that true strength lies in compassion and forgiveness of others. Now, maybe this is me talking and not anyone else, but I also don't believe that it should mean we compromise what we believe in while forgiving someone.
Sometimes the forgiveness comes in moving on from the situation. Remember the turn the other cheek? I've been in a place many times before where screaming at a person to do things time and time again never worked. Even being nice about it didn't work. So instead of making yourself sick in figuring out what to do to get them to do what you think they should, sometimes you just have to walk away and not worry about it.
I like this card, because there's a rainbow in the back which to me means hopes and promises of a new 'order'. There are also doves which represent peace and the world lies at our feet.
So who needs strength today? Know that regardless of the situation, there are those of us (God, Angels and me) who are behind you 100%.

Your Card - “Walk Away” - Leave the unhealthy situation, and enjoy the new doors that open as a result!
Your Card - “The Wheel” - Exciting changes are coming! The Wheel spins with the power of life and turns to bring you prosperous new opportunities. If you’ve been finding it difficult to get your plans off the ground, that will change now! Sudden movement forward is likely.
I decided to pull a couple of cards today. I feel like the energy that we've been dealing with on the blood moon and now the cardinal cross that is coming, has really messed with everyone's energy. It just feels like all the hidden stuff has come to the top and many don't know how to deal with it. So a lot of bad behaviors, harsh words, etc have been coming to the forefront of many people's lives. So, it's interesting that we got the cards walk away and the wheel.
Walk away, to me, can be taken a bunch of different ways, not just the most obvious. However, if that's your situation then their are telling you it's not worth fighting again for. This card to me reminds me of the bible verse of turning the other cheek. Most people assume someone got hit and so they turn the face to the other side so that one too could be hit. But what if both of these is just saying it's time to move on. Have you ever thought that by moving on that you are no longer enabling them to have a hold on you with their behavior? That you're rising above it and they may have to join you or be left. It's never an easy decision to do this kind of things -- trust me, I left an mentally abusive husband.
But when we decide that these people or behaviors no longer have a hold over our lives, the second card comes into play. Whatever was holding you back that you finally have decided to let go of, means good energy comes into play around you and what do you think of a wheel? That it moves. And depending on the type of wheel, some only move forward. Moving forward getting new beginnings and a chance for happiness. Who wouldn't want that? So if you're working on something that is a passion for you, then be ready because it's coming ... :)

Your Card - “Six of Earth” - Abundance is on the way. The Universe loves a grateful heart and rewards gratitude with more abundance. You may be the recipient of this bounty, or you may be the giver. Gifts may be monetary or take some other form, such as an opportunity, advice, and so forth.
Guess the word for today would be grateful. What can you be grateful for? Most people think gratefulness has to be something really big. It doesn't. Being grateful for being here another day, for the rain or sun, or good traffic is something that puts your mind at ease and your energy in a better vibration.
Being in that better vibration is what helps the "universe" to bring the better things for you. It takes the negative away which hinders good things coming your way.
I'm not saying it's easy to do. There are too many days we want to sit and complain about how bad things are -- I do it too. But that only keeps us in that downward spiral and keeps that kind of energy flowing to us.
So like this morning, I'm very tired and my head is hurting. And even though things kept getting in my way this morning and my head got hit again by another loved one, I took a minute to regroup before I got on the road. I didn't have too bad of traffic and considering when I got up this morning wasn't as late as I could have been. So, I know it works. Just really mean it -- not just say the words.
One thing I'm grateful for today, it smelled like spring today. What a day to wake up to -- even if it's rain ;)

Your Card - “Sign From Heaven” - Protea: Your loved ones in spirit are waving hello and giving you reassurance that you’ll be all right.
I was drawn to pull from these cards today. Don't know if it's wishful thinking for Spring, but I go where I'm led.
Interesting that this card came up. A co-worker just lost their grandmother last week. Another co-worker and I were talking about what that kind of loss meant for us and discussing different members in our family that passed. So what a lovely surprise to see that this card came up.
If you have been thinking of someone you have lost, whether recent or otherwise, just know that they're around you as are the angels to give you that much needed boost.
I know I get signs from my loved ones here and there. Like one of my grandmothers -- loved cardinals. So I'll see one here and there when I'm feeling a bit down. Or she always smelled of coconut. So sometimes I'll get that smell and know she's around.
So take a moment remember those loved ones we've lost and those that are still around and appreciate how they have and currently do enrich our lives. Never a bad time to do that. One of the things we can be grateful for.

Your Card - “Practice, Practice, Practice” - With daily practice, you can polish your skills and talents and increase your confidence.
Your Card - “Positive Energy” - “Surround yourself with positive people and situations, and avoid negativity.”
I'm sorry I didn't post one for yesterday, I was busy getting some injections in my back for my nerve issue. Kind of drained me of being able to do much yesterday.
Because of this, I drew 2 cards for today to make up for not drawing one yesterday. The first one is all about practicing. If you're working on a project, take the time to make sure it's how you need it to be. If you're like me, writing a book, need to make sure you're doing the writing you need to -- even if it's only 10-15 minutes you can give to the project. In doing so you'll eventually have the whole thing finished.
The 2nd card for today is all about what I call positivity. To often we get surrounded as light workers by negative type people. That can bring you down as well as if you're a light worker you might actually absorb a lot of the negativity. So if you can for today, get around some positive people. These are the people that are happy and usually optimistic.
If you can not get away from the negative people or situation, use shielding to the best of your ability - or ask someone you know that can help you shield. There are many different ways to shield yourself. Some imagine a bubble of white light around you. Others use colored light. Some use actual images of shields around them. You know what? There is no "wrong" way. It's what is helpful to you.
I also suggest having something around that makes you happy. I try and listen to happy music. I also do my gratitudes before I get up in the morning and before I go to bed. Whether you believe it or not, it does help the mindset.
And if you'd like me to send you a blessing ball -- just let me know you want one and any area you'd like me to focus on or just a general one. I'll be more than happy to help!

Your Card - “Four of Air” - It’s time to rest. Take a vacation, or just create time to regroup and rejuvenate. Retreat from the world and any stress or concerns. If you’ve been ill, focus upon healing and don’t rush back into action.
I don't know about you and where you live, but today it's raining where I live. Sometimes on those days all I want to do is sleep. I also have 3 younger kids so anytime I can try to fit in a nap I usually do.
I would say this card is here today because we've been pushing along with our life and our spiritual purpose. Even though we need to work toward our goals, we can't forget to take care of ourselves. Periods of rest are needed in all situations. If you're having trouble sleeping, look into some meditations. They often put me to sleep, so there's a good chance they may for you.
I know of people whose minds don't shut off. They are constantly thinking and rethinking things. But that's the nice thing about meditation. Especially guided ones, you get to let those thoughts just drift away and pretty soon your mind quiets. Usually at a quiet mind is where you find rest.
For those of you that are like me in wanting to rush into some decisions, there are often times why it would be good not to do so. And this card says to take your time in making a decision. There's no rush. If someone is rushing you -- then make the decision not to do it. You should always take time if it's a really important one.
So, I don't know about you, but with the sound of the rain I'm about ready to go take a nap...
